In brief: DVT, varicose, etc
Painful veins could be many things including: varicose veins, blood clot (superficial or deep -- dvt), thrombophlebitis (inflammation/infection of the veins), an underlying muscle injury, underlying cyst, etc.
See you md to evaluate.

In brief: Blood clot
This could also be something call superficial venous thrombosis (svt) or phlebitis.
I would recommend that you are evaluated by your physician to differentiate from other possiblities such as DVT which was mentioned by dr. Thompson.

In brief: Varicose veins
Pain that came on quickly may be due a blood clot of the varicose vein or of a deep vein.
Other causes of leg pain include musculoskeletal problems. You should be evaluated by a physician, to include a duplex ultrasound. If the pain has been longstanding, it may be due to the varicose vein itself. There are excellent minimally-invasive treatments for varicose veins. See a phlebologist/vein dr.
